Aim: The purpose of this article was to report the low rates of intensive care unit admission and mortality in intermediate-and high-risk COVID-19 patients, and to share our clinical approach with other colleagues. In addition, we sought to reveal the relationship between myocardial injury and clinical outcomes such as death, intensive care unit uptake and hospital stay, and the relationship between inflammatory parameters and cardiac biomarkers in a cardiovascular perspective.
